    Planning a trip for May

    My little brother and a friend from work want me to take them on their first trip to Moab. Due to work requirements we are limited on when we can go. Right now it looks like the first week of May. What I need to know is: Do we run the risk of it being too hot in the afternoons? Hotter than 90 that time of year? Also doing Fruita for a few days so if things are too hot in Moab we can spend more time in Fruita. But i really want them to experience Porcupine and Slick Rock at least.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    It's possible you might get a few 90 degree days but more likely for 70s and 80s. Even if it is in the 90's if you start by 8 or 9 and bring a full Camelbak you'll be fine. Enjoy the trip!
